As part of the Art Lives Here Initiative, the Hyattsville CDC seeks to connect Gateway Arts District businesses with artists and arts professionals of all media to brainstorm and develop plans to collaborate for mutual benefit.
The Biz-Art Match-Up Program will enable businesses to participate in the Arts District through support, relationship building and/or event development, while furthering their own business. Participating business owners will select a specific artist from our pool. Then, they will collaborate with the selected artist to develop a product/activity for the program with the goal of developing an effective tool for the small business owners to market their businesses.
